SuperKids Mobile Pediatric Clinic

Texas Children's Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine


Description of the Organization
SuperKids Mobile Pediatric Clinic was donated by the Junior League of Houston, Inc. to Texas Children’s Hospital in 2000. SuperKids is a joint effort of many organizations to provide free health care and education to medically underserved populations. It is our goal to secure medical homes and health insurance for all children we serve in our clinic.

SuperKids is a non-profit, school based mobile pediatric clinic, designed to care for the medical needs of children in low income areas of Houston. SuperKids' ultimate goal is to find a permanent medical home for every child served by helping families apply for low cost health insurance.
